Thanksgiving Stuff

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I've been asked to make my specialty for dinner at my folks' house. As you can see, this will involve quite some slaving over the stove:

Actually, before you start dissing Stove Top Stuffing (which I'm afraid I prefer to most homemade stuffing--I'm so perverse), bear in mind that one of its chief inventors was a woman, Ruth Siems, who died just last year. So every forkful of Stove Top you have this Thanksgiving is, in a sense, your tribute to the strides women have made over the years.

Besides, it's damn tasty. Really.

Idiot Brit here: what's in Stove Top? We have stuffing, generally with breadcrumbs and herbs. The Stove Top pack looks like it has vegetables in it too?

The Savory Herbs variety has just breadcrumbs and herbs--evidently the veggies are just meant to illustrate things you can mix your stuffing with. But I've never been on very friendly terms with the vegetable world, so I don't mix mine with anything.
